CES 2018 is in much vogue these days, enthralling its viewers with the innumerable products. So, today the discussion is about headphones, a necessity, and found in almost every bag these days. Like many other headphone makers at the CES, this year, Japanese electronics company JVC has released quite a few wireless headphones, all meant for different occasions.
The first is the new HA-ET90BT wireless sports headphones aimed at athletes by JVC. The company claims that these headphones have a water resistance rating of IPX5. The headphones are supposed to stay in place during a workout, courtesy, the rubber fin at the top of each earpiece that adjusts to a user’s ear shape. Users can choose from three different sizes and either a conventional earpiece style or an “open” ear style that lets runners hear nearby noises in their surroundings. The left earpiece has an inbuilt microphone and a button that controls music playback.
Further, the wireless sports headphones come with a carrying pouch with a belt clip and charging case. These HA-ET90BT headphones would be available from March for $149.95.
Talking of the second types, JVC in all probability is trying to appeal to its athletic users, as it’s updating its JVC XX headphone line with a sports HA-ET103BT Bluetooth model. Further, these new in-ear headphones have rubber fins on each earpiece for a secure fit and with that, they are sweat-proof with an IPX2 rating.
These HA-ET103BT headphones are built around an 8.5mm driver and deep bass ports. Along with this, there is also a mic and three-button remote for answering calls and controlling music playback. This is I accompanied with three silicone earpieces in small, medium, and large, as well as a hard plastic carrying case. These headphones are found in variations of black, blue, or red, and would be available in March for $49.95.
The last one JVC brings, is for commuters dealing with noisy planes or trains, terming them as HA-S80BN Bluetooth on-ear noise-canceling headphones. It claims that these foldable headphones have 11 hours of battery life on a single charge with both Bluetooth and noise canceling turned on.
The other accessories with the headphones include an integrated mic and remote, and a detachable cable so that users can charge while they listen. The headphones have three sound modes, namely, normal, bass, and clear. This would be available in May for $99.95.
With these, JVC is also trying to appeal to the fashion-conscious headphone wearers with its HA-S20BT Flats Wireless line of Bluetooth headphones that come in variants of blue, pink, black, or white. These “fashionable” headphones are foldable and have a three-button remote and mic, as well as 11 hours of battery life on a single charge. They would be available from March for $39.95, which is a little cheaper than its probable competitor, Urbanears.
